Welcome to Making Her Mama!

I’m so glad that you’re here!

 

A lot of people ask me what “Making Her Mama” means, so I wanted to share with you why I chose this name and why it’s important to me.

In my journey as a mother I wear many caps; wife, mother, homemaker, homeschooler and more recently, homesteader.  

No matter which role I’m in, my kids are beside me – loving me, helping me, challenging & shaping me.

 

Motherhood is a time of great personal sacrifice & growth, and this blog is about sharing that learning with you.

 

 I hope that you’ll find encouragement for the hard days, advice for keeping family life simple, support and resources for homeschooling, and ideas for making memories with your own family.

I’m looking forward to sharing with you all that I’ve learned.  I’m excited to come along side you to support and encourage you no matter where you are in your journey.

  • Today's haul from the #garden! Nothing beats fresh #veggies! #pattypansquash #zucchini #carrots #greenbeans #tomatoes and #cucumbers we'd be set for a great salad if only my lettuce had done well!
  • I picked a new #potatoes from our garden! It was partially pruning as the plants have become enormous and the vines are starting to sprawl the pathways in the garden. But.... it was also part curiosity to see if there was really anything growing. We ate some of these #russianbluepotatoes pan fried in #butter! Yummy!!! There is nothing like real fresh food!!! Do you grow potatoes? What's your favourite way to enjoy them? Any tips for my harvest?  And PS this is not a sneaky pregnancy announcement as someone asked LOL I don't have twin spuds growing in my belly!!!!
  • Come they told him..... are you quietly singing parumpapumpum? This is my newest little #drummerboy ! It looks like we made 4 tiny human #drummers. I'll have to try and get it on video because this lil guy has got the groove and dance moves to boot!  Do you have any #musicians in your family?? #drummerslife
